Sweat Gland Reduction
Precision Tx is a minimally invasive laser device that can be used to treat and reduce excess underarm sweat. It is a virtually painless, one time, office procedure performed under local anesthesia with minimal to no downtime and minimal to no risks. Excess sweating can impact nearly all aspects of your life from physical discomfort, anxiety and embarrassment. There are over four million people in the US who suffer from excessive sweating where the sweat glands are over-reacting to normal stimuli such as exercise, physical activity, hormones or emotions and producing more sweat than is needed to cool down the body.

What are the risks and how long does it last?
